Back in 1986 Disney released
one of their most underrated movies of all time,
'The Great Mouse Detective.' In this film there
were so many wonderful characters, but one of my
favorites was Fidget. He is a gray, peg legged
bat with a chipped ear, a hurt wing, and very
sharp teeth. He wears a blue sweater, a black
hat, scarf, and one floppy gray shoe. He is very
smart, greedy, and fun.
Fidget lives with Ratigan in
his lair. He amazingly enough is one of the few
Disney villains that ends up turning good. His
enemies include Basil, Hiram Flaversham,
Felicia, Dr. Dawson, Queen Mousetoria, and
Olivia. His allies include Ratigan and the
Sideshow Sea Beast. By the end of the film the
roles are reversed between his enemies and
Fidget can also be found in
the film 'Mickey's House of Villains.' He can be
found in the television show 'House of Mouse,'
while he also makes an appearance on the video
game Basil The Great Mouse Detective which was
on the Commodore 64 platform. He could also be
found in other merchandise such as pins, toys,
comic books, and coloring books.
He was designed by Glen Keane,
and he was voiced by Candy Candio. Glen used
'Creeper,' the character from 'The Black
Cauldron,' to give him ideas for Fidget.
Fidget can't be found in
Disney parks, I heard they planned on having a
Great Mouse Detective attraction in the parks,
but it never came to be.
